Franziska Stünkel “Coexist” powered by Leica and WhiteWall
The exhibition “Coexist”, presented jointly by Leica and WhiteWall, features the latest works by photo artist Franziska Stünkel. For her photographic series, the photographer has been travelling through Asia, Africa, Europe, America and Australia for twelve years in search of natural reflections on shop window glass, which in their condensation tell of the coexistence of human life. At this year’s BERLIN PHOTO WEEK, selected works that Franziska Stünkel photographed in 2021 and 2022 will be premiered. In them, contemporary global themes such as man’s dealings with nature, pandemics and digital influences resonate. Charged to the highest complexity, her photographs are the visualisation of the commonalities and contrasts that exist in our diversely networked world. The artist completely dispenses with digital post-processing of her photographs. The result is a multi-layered view of the highly global question of coexistence in our present.
Franziska Stünkel photographs with the Leica M11. Her photographs are editioned with an limited number of three. The exhibition was curated by Karin Rehn-Kaufmann, Art Director & Chief Representative Leica Galleries International, and produced exclusively by WhiteWall.
